    Found it hard when i was looking at wheels for mine so thought i put this up. 18'' bbs ch replicas bought at reeva wheels on ebay with tyres balanced and new nuts for £550. Fronts are 8.' wide offset ET35 with 215 tyres, Rears 9'' wide offset ET35 215 tyres. Front no rubbing issues but must remove wheel arch liner screw. Rear rubs quite abit so will go for 205 tyres next time and try and remove screw that it rubbs on. Dont let the rubbing of the rear put you off it doesent damage the tyre just drive sencibly with people in the back.

    Do you think its rubbing due to the ET35? if your offset was higher number does that mean the wheel would be more in the arch? Im after a set of wheels myself and dont know what size and offset to go for!!! Bugging me!

    yes they are the 19" Speedline upgrade from the Audi A6. They are also regularly advertised as BBS because when the first came out they were made by BBS but audi switched production to Speedline. (they come in silver as standard)

    That's interesting about the change in production as all four of mine are bbs so must be an early set.

    The A6 ones are ET48 8.5 wide but i think you can also get them in ET54 9 inch wide off the mk2 TT.

    N8 is the man to ask cus he ran a pair of each type on his A3

    'tis tidy Boyds. I've seriously been thinking of chopping in the S3 for a TT-S after seeing a Suzuka Grey one up for grabs and the fact that I've not been "turned on" since getting the replacement S3 in March. OK, it's the same engine, but they drive better, especially with mag ride, "newer" cabin, driving position closer to the ground...

    Would love a TT-RS in Suzuka or Dolphin Grey and on a set of the Breyton Race LS Blacks on it. I know they go on Audi's...
